Subtitled "Dr. Seuss's Surprising Word Book," The Shape of Me and Other Stuff certainly lives up to its billing. In this delightful book, first published in 1973, children are encouraged to ponder shapes they may never have considered before: "Just think about the shape of beans and flowers and mice and big machines!" Dr. Seuss's illustrations are in silhouette (for the purpose of accenting the outlines of figures), but are nonetheless up to par with his usual wacky, amusing style. Soaring well beyond the mundane arena of circles, triangles, and squares, here we are challenged to consider "the shape of camels the shape of bees and the wonderful shapes of back door keys!" Kids will love the silly rhymes and funny pictures, and parents will appreciate this original take on the largely untapped world of shapes. (Under fives)

From the Back Cover:

Bright and Early books help even the youngest children get ready to read.

Simple stories and basic concepts are humorously presented in rhythm and rhyme. Pictures that fully explain the text help even babies make the important connection between word and meaning.

It's never too early to find out that 'Learning to read is Fun'.

Recognizing shapes is an important skill for pre-readers, and Dr Seuss makes it extremely enjoyable. Children will first want to identify all the amusing shapes in THE SHAPE OF ME AND OTHER STUFF and will later match them to the words nearby.
